Aperture: f/18

With the guidance to 'be creative', I thought I'd better get out of a studio setting. I hope it doesn't come over as too self-indulgent, I've shot a lot of DPC entries in this wood, so I thought it a fitting setting for this self portrait - a portrait of the physical me and the photographic me.

Well done! Like a fantasy story, it's as if you are gently warning the viewer not to take the path in the woods.

Too bad you couldn't figure out a way to show a city in the other side of the "portal". That would look cool.

Interesting effect. It almost comes off, but something doesn't work quite right. Perhaps the mirror is too obvious.

AHHHHH...ok...took me a minute to realize that this is a mirrored reflection! Very clever! Made me wonder if it as an illegal shot for a moment but, extremely well done! :)

Haven't I seen you on Californicatoin? ;)

Great idea and nicely captured. I feel the blown out background in the mirror works well against the overall darkness of the image. Well done! 8
